I was also wondering why christophe is playing, but if I think about it... I don't think olivier had very good results this year... but I don't know about the results of Christophe.

I mean olivier is higher ranked. And if I can recall they had more or less the same results ...
The outstanding result of olivier was at wimbledon by beating marat safin...

I would pick olivier if I was the captain but hey I'm not lol

I was wondering about that myself. Olivier had much better results last year. He made it to the final in Copenhagen and a semi-final in St. Poelten. He's ranked 63 compared to Christophe's 125. :eek: There must be a mistake.

They already started. It's 2-1 for Ferrero, going with serve.

So isn't Olivier injured or what? Than it's just stupid from the coach.

I thought it was a stranng choice too, but in the newspaper I read Martens chose Christophe because he has a game that can surprise the other player while Olivier has a classic game. (in't Nederlands: Christophe kan het spel van zijn tegenstander echt ontwrichten en ze uit hun evenwicht brengen, terwijl Olivier een veel klassieker spel heeft volgens hem). Also because Christophe has had some good results against top-Spaniards: his head to head against Costa is 1-0, against Corretja 2-0 and 0-0 against Ferrero and Moya! :) (so he hadn't lost against any of the Spaniards in the team until now)

I hope they can win their doubles match tomorrow and then surprise everyone by winning both Sunday singles matches too!!! :p
